Roads, Border Crossings and Ferry Ports to Avoid This Weekend

Total Croatia News

The peak of the high season has arrived, and we’re headed for a hellish weekend filled with traffic jams and queues at highway tollbooths and border crossings.

Information Centre at HAK put together a handy map along with a list of roads, border crossings, coastal destinations and ferry ports that will experience the most traffic in the coming days.

HAK has been tracking driving patterns on Croatian highways and local roads for 39 years, and are now more than capable to predict where the crowded focal points are going to form.

“This rich experience was our foundation as we set to create a Map of Summer Traffic Jams on our roads. The most considerable queues always form on weekends, especially on Saturdays when large numbers of tourists are entering the country or heading back home.

This map is here to draw attention of local and foreign drivers to locations and road sections where queues are known to form. To make the information easier to use, we divided it into a couple of categories:

a) border crossings: Kaštel, Plovanija, Pasjak, Rupa, Bregana, Macelj, Goričan, Bajakovo, Metković, Klek, Zaton Doli, Karasovići, Ličko Petrovo Selo, Maljevac, Stara Gradiška, Slavonski Brod

b) ferry ports: Brestova-Porozina (Cres island), Valbiska-Merag (Cres), Stinica-Mišnjak (Rab), Prizna-Žigljen (Pag), Sumartin-Makarska (Brač), Drvenik-Sućuraj (Hvar), ferry ports in the cities of Zadar and Split

c) tollbooths: Lučko, Rupa, Zaprešić, Zagreb-East

d) tourist destinations on the coast (see map)

e) highway and local road sections:

– tollbooth Bobovica (highway A3) – interchange Jankomir – Zagreb freeway – interchange Ivanja Reka – tollbooth Sveta Helena (A4)
– interchange Maslenica – Sveti Rok tunnel (A1)
